These therefore tried to link agreement to the representation of the two Soviet republics with that of Argentina. The Soviet Union, on the other hand, sought to link the representation of Argentina with the settlement of the Polish issue.

The Planning of the Charter 33 BETWEEN DUMBARTON OAKS AND SAN FRANCISCO Some of the disputed points were followed up fairly quickly. The US Government produced a new formula to overcome the difficulty about voting rights for the permanent members. It proposed that such a member would be able to veto enforcement action proposed against it in the Council, but could not veto judicial or quasi-judicial' proceedings when the Council was merely considering and pronouncing on a dispute. President Roosevelt personally pressed Stalin to accept this formula in early December.

In the United States, perhaps because Roosevelt had little time to devote to the question, the regional approach largely disappeared. A committee under Sumner Welles proposed in the summer of 1943 an interim UN authority, with an executive committee consisting of the four great powers and a few others, which should take over responsibility for world security, even while the war was still on, pending the establishment of a more comprehensive organisation. Though this was intended in the first place as a temporary measure, it probably represented the kind of organisation that many in the US government would have liked to see emerge in the long term as well.
